Encryption Manager is a file manager, that offers a comfortable and secure way to keep files with confidential data encrypted using AES or Twofish encryption on your storage (internal storage, external SD card, USB storage).

A master password is both used to access the application and to encrypt the encryption keys, that are generated randomly for each file. Confidential files are accessible directly after the login. With one click on the file, the file is decrypted to a user defined location and can be shown by an installed app for this file type. When you are finished working with the decrypted copy, the file is re-encrypted either automatically or with one confirmation click and the decrypted file is wiped from the storage. This wipe process will overwrite the data with random bytes before the file is deleted. So even if the device is lost or stolen, it is not possible to access your confidential data.

Encrypting new files is very simple: they can be chosen either with the built-in file manager or by simply using the Android "send/share" function from another app.

    This app is exactly what I was looking for. A manager to almost automatically manage sensitive files on my phone. Also many programs don't sport proper encryption for their databases (K-9 etc.) which is a shame, and this program can be used for this purpose. 5 stars for now.

    I encrypted a large portion of files in my sd card and when trying to open or unencrypt the file there was "error 20" message for some of the files and the file was gone! Could not get the file back and lost my information, Sent a message to the developers of the app and I am still waiting for their response

    I encrypted the pictures and video and it is fine, but when un-encrypted the file and see them from Gallery, I could see them. but after encrypted them again, all the files that supposed to delete, it shows in Gallery. I have Samsung 3S. It only hide them once and I have to delete them old one??

    Had a question with this app, Emailed developer. received a reply that was both prompt and to the point of my problem. it is not often that a developer replies so quickly, at least that has been my experience. to me, it says that they not only stand behind their product, but that I can be comfortable dealing with them in the future, and that's something I appreciate.

    I've used this for the last 19 months or so. Very easy to use. Instinctive really and gives great peace of mind because if your phone is lost or stolen you know that no one can view your private data like files or photos. Has never failed me and is updated at regular intervals. For the small price involved it is worth it.
